Four different categories of problems emerge from consideration of the major non-military problems of the coming years:

First, those coming from the East-West relationship. These include the implications of detente.

Second, those coming from relationships among the Allies. These are problems both of cooperation and competition; and include the new and potentially disruptive element of Eurocommunism.

Third, the problems of transnational character, such as energy, food, population, ecology and the “North-South” question of how to improve the basis of relations with the peoples of the emerging nations.

Fourth, human rights, including basic human needs.
